Let’s begin the week with venting frustrations over a complete lack of representation coming out of Washington. It’s the summer, vacations are winding down and school is but a short week away. Politicians are even on vacation from a lack of representation.
It’s interesting to point out, in about a year from now, politicians will be interrupting church services, weekend outings in parks, meals in diners and hair cuts in barber shops. They’re going to be campaigning for election, or re-relection and that, within itself, represents your only 15 minutes of interaction with your representative.
The president is off on another vacation. This time on Martha’s Vineyard again, rubbing elbows with celebrities and his communist manifesto regime while Egypt is in the midst of a civil war with the Muslim Brotherhood. While he’s on this week long golf tour, Idaho is facing a real disaster. It’s amazing how he’s never around in the midst of national, or international disasters.
Lawmakers are also on vacation and it boggles the mind, as to why. One would think vacations for politicians are earned, based on actually work, which is reflective of accomplishments. The only thing they’ve accomplished is to accept ‘silver and gold’ over actual representation.
They rather have silver and gold than represent the people, the Constitution and their oaths of office. They’ve become the big ‘I’ of the country, and even though they need the little ‘u,’ you’re not even worthy of a townhall meeting, a face to face, or a email to email.
A recent report stated, ‘more than eight out of 10 non-supervisory workers in America say that no matter what they hear about the economy, working families are falling behind, and a majority of employees in the U.S. now believe their children will be worse off economically than they are.’
Here’s a thought, since elected officials don’t even consider the country, the Constitution or the Bill of Rights, why not harness that sentiment, bottle the energy and break away from every political party established in the country. Don’t create a new party, just vote American. Why not send a message to an entrenched Washington and a warning to new representation. After all, the song goes like this, ‘My country tis of thee.’
